Still shy about saying what distro you're using? Anyway, most mozilla stuff is already on one repos or another. The big "sellers" Firefox (aka Iceweasel) and Tunderbird certainly are. This is the world of "free" (as in speech) software so if you go on one of the forums from your distro maybe you can (a) find out that it is on one of your repos or (b) convince someone to become a package maintainer for seamonkey.
Personally I find it's faster to install Mozilla stuff directly. It's already binary so I (a) download it (b) untar it and (c) move it to my /opt folder.
Finally, as I said, if you're using fedora, then there are already packages for you.
